Puck Hogs

Aug. 24, 2020 at 10:49 a.m. MDT

"Puck Hog", is a game of irony! In this Cross-Ice 2vs2 Game players are not permitted to pass the puck!!! As a result, the players without the puck learn to move into effective positions on turnovers to achieve puck possession and or defend. The game forces players to read the play, anticipate and adapt to the randomized environment in an unconventional way. You will be amazed to see what happens in this real world game of chess!!

Teaching Points

Reading and Reacting are two of the most important skills a player can learn. Many young players attempt to go where the puck is and not where the puck is going. Small area games such as "Puck Hog", create this learning environment. The feed-forward in this drill is created by the game itself as much as the coach who is running it.
